I Don’t Care If You Touch My Hair

Esperanza Spalding

During a post-Grammy interview with the Associated Press, overnight sensation Justin Bieber performed the ultimate Black-girl no-no when he reached out to pat Esperanza Spalding’s ‘fro. Black women across America went into an uproar…Over hair?

Understandably, women who pay a great deal of money (regardless of whether or not it fits into the budget) to maintain their tresses are inclined to preserve a fresh ‘do for as long as possible. But, it shouldn’t be the end of the world if someone dares to touch it during casual conversation (or yank it a little during you know what).

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      vIt’s not as petty as the author might think. I see many a pretty and interesting a thing and never would I go about touching something that isn’t mine without permission. I am not a petting zoo..yes my natural hair is amazing(lol) but please do not touch me

  • Pam

    well excuse me for not wanting to be petted by complete strangers like a common zoo animal. “feel this ,honey! its just like a sheep!” if you don’t know someone keep your hands to yourself, didnt we learn that in kindergarten? just sayin.

  • Shananigans

    i never understood why people would think its ok to just touch someone, its not even about the hair just dont touch me unless u know u can

  • ricoblack313

    she the baddest out right now and she a closet freak,love her!!!

  • foreallydoe

    U don’t pat any adult on the head…period. that dude wouldn’t have wanted anyone touching his head when he had that fruity hairstyle.

  • WithAllHonesty

    Its just ignorant/rude period. I would say the same if this were a white woman. You just don’t go around putting your hands in people’s hair. This is mainly a white thing, they don’t know better, you just gotta teach ’em.

  • Allie

    I have had some issues with this in the past, but now that my hair is short, people don’t see the hype, they just gawk at it lol, but i do like when guys will run their hands through the back, that i don’t mind :)

  • if anything be noble

    Pull out their tongues. Turn it from side to side. Check underneath it. Tell em to say Aaah. Put on a miner’s hat with the big light on your forehead. Do eye exams. Pull out a chart and tell them to read the bottom line. –SMH.



  • WithAllHonesty

    I’m crackin’ up LOL.

  • Mrs. Rance

    Her hair is beautiful. Got me thinking about doing it. Or at least a smaller version of it. Anywho, all he needed to do was ask first.

  • Moanmyname (Certified now!)

    love love love her hair. my hair must be that powerful 2 yrs from now

  • daisy jay

    LOL @NOBLE. Don’t forget cavity checks! BEND OVER AND COUGH

    As long as your afro is clean and well taken care of, then it’s beautiful. All hair textures are great in their own ways.


    Omg a black woman with real hair, call National Geographic and see if we can set up a wildlife reserve for this chick because I think they’re an endangered species.


  • if anything be noble

    Honesty. LOL I’m just sayin.
